Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on May 7 wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi urging him to "stop the needless suffering" of the people as COVID-19 cases continue to touch record highs in India.
Suggesting ways to tackle the crisis, Gandhi said it is important that the Centre focuses on tracking the virus and mutations across the country using genome sequencing as well as disease pattern.
The opposition leader said that government must "dynamically assess the efficacy of all vaccines against new mutations as they are identified".
In his letter, Gandhi suggested that the government should not be concerned about the economic impact of the lockdown as the human cost of the spread of the virus would have tragic consequences for the people.(This is a developing story. Please check back for more details)
